USHL vet Mike Seidel committed to Minnesota-Duluth. Seidel took visits to Ferris State, Michigan Tech, Western Michigan, and Quinnipiac. It sounds like he committed to UMD after talking with a couple former Cedar Rapids teammates. It's nice to see UMD has gotten past the Mason Raymond "You don't want to come to school here" era.
Also, Chris Heisenberg lists Edina defenseman Brendan Baker as committing to Holy Cross, which, like, whoa. I really like the way that Baker plays and think he's one of the best defensemen in the Minnesota HS ranks, and Holy Cross is, well, Holy Cross. Not that they're a bad team by any stretch, I just would have guessed he'd end up somewhere more known for their hockey program, so that seems like a huge recruiting win for their program.
Side note, I know my street cred in Atlantic Hockey is already perilously low after this past week, but it took me 7 guesses before I guessed what state Holy Cross was in. I don't know what I was thinking when I guessed Hawaii. Also, no mention of Holy Cross would be complete without this.
Anyway, it looks like Baker will start college right away out there, and should have a very good career out there.
